Joy

TODAY’S VERSE

“Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.”
Psalms 34:5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is an epidemic of shame. Why is it that we who have been called by Christ, we who have had our sins forgiven, we who have been lavished with the love of God Himself, still struggle with shame? What happened? Who lied to us? What has led to this pervasive feeling of worthlessness? Guilt I understand. I have sinned and in need of forgiveness. But how do we find forgiveness for shame? How do we correct that insidious feeling of something so utterly broken? Shame, it is a lie from Hell itself. It takes what God has created and defames it. But today it can stop! Today we can choose joy. Today we can look into the face of our loving Savior and believe what He believes about us. We can replace the lie of shame with the truth of His love. We are His beloved. We are His joy. We are His creation and He looks at us with love. Today, let the truth change you. Stop. Don’t go any farther until you believe. Look at Him. Gaze upon God and His love for you until your face becomes radiant with joy. So radiant that no shadow of shame dares to ever darken your face again. May it be so.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father. I need Your grace. I need the transforming power of Your love to fill me. Help me gaze upon Your face and see Your love for me. I surrender my feelings of shame and ask You to replace them with joy.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
